Nino's: One True Thing

Dark and comforting as a womb, the old-fashioned neighborhood trattoria with incredibly good, authentically Italian food is such an irresistible notion that it's a kind of cinematic stereotype, in everything from The Big Night to "The Sopranos." You need only hear the words "chianti" and "checked tablecloth," and you're off and salivating.

A City That Works

Chicago works because of its mayor. The city preached this message to 90 leaders from the Atlanta region during their recent annual LINK visit. LINK, which stands for "Leadership, Innovation, Networking, and Knowledge," is sponsored by the Atlanta Regional Commission and other regional organizations. There was a lot of networking and leadership on the trip — and some blood on the floor. More on that later.
